Yesterday morning I had a lovely time meeting Peter, a collector that came to meet his special commission Bear that I have been making for him. Crosby was brought to life with a fabulous Schulte kid mohair, all swirly and with fabulous different colours of Christmas silver and chocolate! He was a big Bear to bring to life, a real treat to create. My all time favourite Christmas Song is Bing Crosby's "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas", and when this Bear was sat looking at me all finished, the name Crosby just seemed to suit him. We could even have a White Christmas, with our first winter Frost today.
As a Thank You Christmas present I knitted this little teddy tree ornament from a free pattern from Little Cotton Rabbits.
It's always nice to chat will fellow Bear enthusiasts and Winston was made a very happy Bear by being taken home with Peter and Crosby, all snuggled up in a lovely warm fleece! They sure are going to be very loved Bears in a wonderfully fun home. I can just imagine the mischief they will get up to, with their other Bumpkin Bears brothers already well settled into their home.
I am busy working on a super cute Bunny illustration, if you love Christmas craft projects, then you must pop back soon! So excited! Hugs, Catherine xx
